Having lurking around for a while, I am finally posting my first message
. Awesome group of talented people here!
A couple of years ago I did this cosmetics hanger thing to organize my array of cosmetics & tools as I lived in a tiny tiny apartment with my family. I got the idea from the IKEA sofa pockets for remote control, but couldn't find any designed for small items. Therefore I put my stuff on the fabric and used the fabric's pattern as gridlines to design my own. There's no sewing machine around so I had to hand sew the whole thing.
Basically it is just a wide band of fabric folded in half with lots of pockets attached. It hangs on the wall behind my room's door to make use of that small gap and the full-length mirror attached to the door. I knew nothing about choosing a sturdy material or using interface, so it deformed a bit due to all that weight. So far I find it quite convenient except when I need to clear the dust off some unused pencils, and when someone attempts to open my door when I am putting on the eyeliner...
The upper half:
Obviously I am so in love with the concealers that they outnumbered my foundations...
The lower half:
3/F: mascaras, eyeshadows and liners
1/F: blushes and lipbalms
And there's a large back pocket at the bottom, where I keep some cotton pads & Q-tips for makeup disastors, and yes that's my razor aka "oh-no-missed-a-spot-when-I-shaved-my-legs rescue tool" peeking out at the bottom left corner...
